Overview: The Falcons went through a transition year last year and hope to build off that experience. Mountain Valley is still young, with six new sophomores. Developing the backcourt, including a point guard, will be one of the challenges for the Falcons. Some of these players have seen success recently in soccer and softball. So the Falcons could benefit from that experience and continue to improve like those teams did.
